Call it a Seattle thing, but my son wants to invest forward by working for a Seattle-area technology startup for free plus stock options. Here’s why. We’ve decided its more important to learn how to work in his vocation than simply making money in an unrelated endeavor. He’s investing in his employer as they invest in him.

Every preacher needs a pulpit to sermonize from. The other day I found an old fall conference message from 2011 that spoke to me: PIVOT!

I recently surveyed our community and discovered something amazing! Over 40 percent of the IT community we speak with has either a relationship or interest in creating an opportunity with local/county/regional governments. Our large response rate to the survey made this statistically valid (read “not fake news”) and we were pleasantly surprised. Which brings us to the point of this blog. Pursuing more government accounts means more money for MSPs, partners, resellers and consultants. It’s good Azure-based recurring revenue work.

You would save money if you’re using Microsoft technology. If you want to supply terabytes of space, but you only want to pay for what you use (in a vm), then you are more likely to save money. If you only want a vm, then you'd save money and all this money could be saved if you buy Azure.

We’re putting the final touches on our current event schedule for 2Q+ and there is still time to offer your input. Please complete this short survey with your learning preferences and what content you’d like to see. We’ll have the independent experts such as Grant that you’ve come to know us for.
